I use, and love these three stones, a 1200 Bester, a 5000 Suehiro Rika and an 8000 Naniwa Jyunpaku ( Snow White ). I want to add a Kitayama(sp) 8000 because it is actually a 12000 stone but labeled as an 8000 and the price is unbeatable, a Suehiro 6000 or maybe any Suehiro in a lower grit because the feel and performance of all of Suehiro’s stones Ive used is phenomenal and maybe a Naniwa 800 or a bester or beston 1000 or 800.
With the three I have though I can get a better than mirror finish on any tool I have in about 15 minutes and they are always razor sharp and that is no stretch of the truth. The Jyunpaku is a magical stone. Those three stones can be had for way less the 200 dollars from
